    Try a hangman game, its reasonably complex with lotsa functions needed but not necessarily any classes. Instead of the gallows use the word HANGMAN and fill in a letter each time the user guesses incorrectly. You can use random words from a file as well. Just an idea, I have the source if you want to pursue the idea...

    How about a program that takes in usernames and passwords and encodes them in the text files?

    If you want to search around these boards I suggested a project a week or so ago that will work for any skill level and still be challenging.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    follow the board. Try to answer questions/solve problems, whether you share your solutions/frustrations is immaterial.

    design a program to design and solve a maze, with or without use of classes.

    design a system to manage a banks finances. Allow for multiple customers with multiple accounts. Offer account updating online, ATM withdrawals, electronic check writing, transaction accounts for customers as well as the bank. Prepare financial statements for the bank from the accounts sumarizing all the customers transactions.

    design a scheduling system for assigning call duty to a group of 12 individuals manning a 24 h call desk help line. The schedule should cover 12 weeks. Everyone should have seven call days over the 12 week cycle. Everyone should be on call 4 weekdays and once each on F, Sa, Su. Everyone gets one week day (other than F) to be off to play golf, or shop for new computers, or get their hair done or whatever. No more than 4 people can have the same weekday off. No one should be on call more often than every 3 days. No one should be on call on consecutive weekends (F, Sa, Su are considered weekend days). Individuals should be able to request time off for personal reasons ranging from birthdays/continuing education/vacation with maximum time off being 5 weeks per year. You should be able to display the 12 week schedule on a single page to hand out to the members of the team. The print out may be in any format you wish as long as it is a single page. It should show who is responsible to be at the help desk and who is going to be gone so individuals can trade call if their schedule changes after you develop your schedule.

    Come up with some real life scenarios of your own and try to solve the problem.
